Thailand- The following is our weekly feature in which we ask our readers a news topical question and get their insight and opinions. We then share their feedback a week later and pick a variety of diverse and interesting responses. These questions, by the way, are read by authorities and we have had feedback on multiple occasions by those in local and regional power. This week we are asking you the following: What should Thailand do about Songkran this year? Should it be canceled for the second year in a row? Postponed? Allowed with rules? Only traditional? Etc. Although the current Covid-19 situation in Thailand appears to be mostly controlled in quarantined and restricted migrant communities in Samut Sakhon after a month of what seems to be improved across the rest of the country, some people are starting to look ahead to Thailand’s BIGGEST holiday-Songkran.

The revised 7 Series has a bigger nose and more might from a new plug-in hybrid system. What’s new? After being on the market for three years in its current generation, the BMW 7 Series has been given a facelift and an improved plug-in hybrid system. Chief among the visual changes is no other than the front grille which has grown tremendously in size. Others are detailed alternations that are naturally overwhelmed by the news of the bigger nose.

The video, self-directed by the singer, opens with her back in the cabin where the visual for her song “cardigan” from the record “folklore” was set. She then steps inside a wooden piano that transports her to a different dimension again, as seen on her YouTube page today. As she enters the magical place, she sees the reflection of a man in a lake and jumps in to follow. However, Swift finds herself inside a glass display in a carnival, where she sees the man once more. “The more that you say, the less I know / Wherever you stray, I follow ,” she sings in the chorus. “I’m begging for you to take my hand/ Wreck my plans, that’s my man .” After their brief meeting, Swift eventually returns to the cabin and finds him waiting ... » Learn More about WATCH: Taylor Swift debuts new surprise album with ‘willow’ music video
